I am confused now!

In all seriousness you’ll probably have to do a hirevue video interview where you record yourself responding to basic questions. Edit: Let me be helpful for once. Typically recruiting calls you to make sure you’re not mentally unhinged. Proceed to hirevue where you record yourself giving answers and play some fun and interactive games to make you feel better about yourself. Than a phone interview with someone whose position would be a direct report for you should you be hired. After that it’s final calls with recruiting to discuss pay.

Thanks for the elaborate response! Is this process applicable to senior consultant as well? I am not a big fan of hirevue interviews.

i’ve heard of people getting rejection messages so you seem to be on the uptick

Good news!

I believe it does. Possibly a phone screen before the actual interviews. What practice?

Ah, good luck!

Probably not helpful, but this has been my status for about six weeks now.

Nothing yet.

I have the exact status similar to you OP- been since Sep 16! However, a similar position asked me to do hire vue interview and it was exactly as described above. 2 weeks later I had a panel interview. It is now 3 weeks since that one- and today they asked for more info plus another call tomorrow. Soooo do not give up- the process is lengthy with EY the majority of the time!

On my follow-ups: I sent thank you email to recruiter/panel interviewers next day in first week. I sent follow up questions (3) and one item I forgot to mention in interview exactly one week after interview in 2bd week and 3rd week they replied, asked for more info and then had another call. Was told I should know within a week now or so. Status still shows same as of this morning.

So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4.. I’d advise Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG folks to let EY stand alone on this one! None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
